GRIP The School (GTS) is an initiative dedicated to assisting Chicago’s under-resourced public schools–cultivating adult/youth Life-on-Life relationships to create a safer and more effective learning environment for our teens. These relationships then extend outside the walls of the school to engage students in their homes, churches, and communities.
As GTS mobilizes churches to serve local schools, hallways are saturated with people and resources to meet the practical needs of the school. GTS connects volunteers to teach after-school courses, assist teachers and administrators both inside and outside of the classroom, implement security, orchestrate school-wide assemblies, lead small group lunchroom discussions, teach the creative arts, coach sports teams, and connect students with positive extracurricular activities,
such as our SLAM program.
